Their love burns hot, but will it stay fueled?

Crystal is an enlisted mechanic with a tragic past. Grant is an officer and a pilot with a broken heart. When faced with a difficult decision, will Crystal choose wisely or lose the best thing that ever happened to her?
The love between them burns hot, but their relationship won't stay fueled if they can't beat the obstacles that stand in their way. Besides breaking the fraternization rules, Grant and Crystal have the difference of race between them…but can they prove to the rest of the world, and to each other, that love is color blind?

Afterburn is about overcoming one's past, not judging others, learning to forgive, and what it's like to be a woman in a "man's world."

Afterburn was a wonderful read that addressed several issues. Some of the issues were ones I was blind to until recently. When I read this manuscript I thought, Oh, this level of racism doesn't still happen. Then I started seeing it around me. 2012 and we're still pointing fingers at mixed couples. It's shameful.

One of the other issues that the couple faces in this military romance is sexual harassment. I really love how the author handled the situation and the emotions. I love the conflict that arises and how it is resolved. What I love most, though, is how the conflict wakes another character up in the story. Stories that make people quit being sheeple are awesome!

This book wasn't about sex, despite the fact sex is in it. It's about real people facing real issues that modern society can't get a grip on. This makes Afterburn a MUST READ! ~ D. F. Krieger
